  1. There is nothing children like better than playing games. These are the games we play in Oughterard.
    Jack Stones
    Four corner Fool
    Hide and Seek
    Fox and Geese
    We amuse ourselves on a rainy day by making paper boats, making dools out of chestnuts, making animals of potatoes and by making photo frames out of card board.
    Boys makes tops. of spools and cradle-birds for catching birds out of Sally switches. They make catapult for killing birds. They also make snares for catching rabits and hares out of thin wire.
